Physical Education & Sport

Physical education and sport programs are delivered to all students at Coolbinia Primary School, from Pre-Primary to Year 6, providing students with the skills needed for confident participation in sport and recreational activities.

A rich and varied sports program is offered, led by the Physical Education Specialist, and supported strongly by all classroom teachers. From Pre-Primary to Year 3, the program aims to foster a love of physical activity. There is a strong emphasis on play with a focus on fundamental movement skills.

From Years 4 to 6, the program shifts towards game play to strengthen and reinforce skill development under game conditions. There are many opportunities for developing sportsmanship, teamwork and fitness.
